I just got news that my A1C has continued its descent. A month and a half away from my 2nd Anniversary and my A1C has dropped to 5.8 down from 6.0 at my year and a half point. As a Disabled Veteran, I'm dealing with the continued progression of my military injuries and have most recently lost the use of my right foot and had surgery on my spine (Artificial Disc Replacement). My MD says I'm driving her crazy with my goal of getting and staying down around 5.0, but I'm feeling great and am not having the lows that I had in the beginning as I become more and more comfortable with my aggressive regimen. All things considered, I've never felt better about my Diabetes and thank the TuDiabetes family for their support. I don't post as often as I'd like, but I'm always thinking about you all and wishing you the best.

Hope everyone is doing well!
